My 2 cents:
Provide at least 7 hours of sleep. (e.g. If you need to get up at 6:00, get to bed not later than 23:00)
A glass of wine before bed promotes sleep very well for me.
If you are not a wine person - Have a cup of mint tea before sleep.
Waking up - get your procedure straight up.
Coffee/tea maker that will start boiling (and smelling delicious) at 05:55.
Phone ringer at 05:59, as far from you as possible.
Another ringer (e.g. Clock) at 06:01. Choose mild but loud ring tone that is not annoying.
Get up and don't get back to the bed when you snooze the ringers. Go to the kitchen and pour a coffee or tea.
Sit in front of TV or PC and read the news. Comment on your Blog/Hub/Lens/Barrel.
Shower and get to work
If you are a coffee drinker, use an automatic coffee maker so you can smell fresh brewed coffee when you wake up. Buy your favorite breakfasts to look forward to. Force yourself up. In a week or two, your body will be used to it.
Great advice so far.
I would like to add waking up to your favorite, energetic song. (A CD or MP3 alarm clock) Waking up to a song that gets you pumped, starts you dancing, singing or banging your head, whichever your musical preference, will create a positive mood and increased energy, and prepare you well for the new day.
I have several alarms going off, or I'll just sleep right through them. Also, I will occasionally use free wakeup call services to call my house phone and wake me up.
Okay, three things: (1) Go to bed at a decent hour, (2) Alarm clock, (3) cold shower.... and if that doesn't work, (4) coffee!!!! Well, I guess that turned into four things, not three. Good luck!

Would you rather go to bed early and wake up early OR go to bed late and wake up late? Why?
